Our Christmas special rockets towards its gory conclusion as labyrinthine CIA plots crash headlong into Transnistria's alarmingly well funded Antarctic Intelligence Service. Who will live to Explore the Secret Oilfields? And who will die on... the Ice!

Fiasco is an excellent little storygame created by Jason Morningstar and brought to us by Bully Pulpit Games. Give 'em some love.

The Liberation Industries team returns to Fiasco, and with all the snowy thoughts floating around at this time of year, The Ice seemed like the perfect playset to use!

Join Nik and Boris (diplomatic liaisons), Bryan with a Y and Bernice (happily married) and Nancy (definitely not CIA) as they unravel a twisted conspiracy formed around the usually pretty uneventful McMurdo Sound Research Base...

Teenage Crescent Head werewolves Alex, Ava and Sleeves get a crash course in battling their ancestral enemies, the Beshilu Rat Hosts, which leaves them woefully ill equipped to deal with the nefarious plans of Ava's mother, and the strange madness their new forms seem to spread...

After our... actually multiple month long horror interlude, it is time for Liberation Industries to return to Crescent Head for even more horror!

Having survived their first run-in with a member of the Pure Tribes, Crescent Head teens Alex, Ava and Sleeves get back to what's really important; prep for the end of year ball! Unfortunately, they're not the only one's with agendas...

Special guests Tim and Mel join Liberation Industries for our first Halloween Special!

As the hull falls apart, the Saddleback is boarded by hostile forces, and the Box gives more of its ominous gifts, everything seems lost for the crew and civilians at the bottom of the North Sea. So... why does all this feel like it is going to plan?

For this Fiasco game we used the Objective Zebra playbook, available from the Bully Pulpit Games website. Fiasco is an old favourite for the Liberation Industries crew, and as Lovecraft enthusiasts the nods to The Temple in this playset made us very happy.

Special guests Tim and Mel join Liberation Industries for our first Halloween Special!

Deep in the muck at the bottom of the North Sea, the crew and civilians aboard the USS Saddleback wait grimly for death; whether at the hands of the Nazis, starvation or the final failure of the hull. What they don't realise is that death may already be aboard...

With Redriver Church's secrets slowly coming to light, all hell breaks loose as battles are fought and monsters demand payment. The Immortal Bastard's warlock is revealed, and those who live and those who die are decided by Lady Luck and the devil's chosen kin... 

Our Rogues Gallery, for those who were not present while we did Scut Work for the Demiurge, is as follows:

Padre Callehandro, an ill-starred and haunted priest, vessel to Thoth'Char the Patient.

"Daddy" Harry, a disgraced former sheriff granted infernal resilience by Sally the Juggernaut. 

Dee, a laconic and stealthy bounty hunter and keeper of the Twins, a pair of clear eyed monsters. 

"Sister" Mary, a vengeful former nun ensnared by the promises of Marius the Inescapable.

Lottie, a well bred young lady lost to madness, companion of the charming Mister Alistair.

Wilbur, a young farmer regretting his decision to barter the love of any he desires for a piece of his heart, currently housing the irresistable Anton the Vain.

The pursuit of the Devil John awaits. Will the posse find what they're looking for? Or will their blood moisten the crimson soil of Redriver Church?

Liberation Industries presents a blast from the past, delivered into terrifying existence by the wonderful folks over at Satyros Comedy Society. 

Still in drydock on the Jovian moon Europa, the Count (a drug fiend and possibly captain), Hammer (a good natured killing machine) and Muggins (a jaded cook) find themselves hungover and in need of a new engineer. Spanners has obliged, and the gang get to know each other a little better...

With monsters before them, monsters within, and their own guilt hard on their heels, the gunslingers followed the Immortal Bastard across the desert. In the town of Redriver Church they hunt a warlock hidden between a web of smugglers, strange local legends and a skittish but numerous clergy. 

Though nothing is as it seems, one thing is certain. There will be blood.

Padre Callehandro, an ill-starred and haunted priest, vessel to Thoth'Char the Patient.

Welcome to Crescent Head High, on the picturesque North Coast of New South Wales.

Exams are coming, grand finals loom, and the end of year ball is so close you can almost smell it; totally normal teenagers Ava, Alex and Evelyn were beginning to think that things couldn't get any more stressful. Naturally they do; nothing ruins your routine quite as quickly as a mounting body count...

Minor warning regarding references in plot to abusive parenting. Not many, just thought I'd let you know.

In the chaos born of brutal ambushes and torrid locker room staredowns, Crescent Head teens Alex, Ava and Sleeves parley as best they can with the strange new creatures they see inhabiting their world, and face for the first time the claws and anger of the Pure Tribes. 

And they spend more time in various stages of undress, which gets this episode Wolfbro's stamp of approval!

With their new corvid spirit-friend in tow, Crescent Head teens Alex, Ava and Sleeves return to reality and the suite of problems dogging their every step; their crushes, their exams, and alarming cardio of the bodyguard that Sleeve's father has hired. 

Throw that on top of the fleeting nature of trousers, and things are looking far from rosy.

After nursing their Saturday hangovers, Crescent Head teens Alex, Ava and Sleeves make their preparations for their first steps into a hitherto unknown world of wacky concept monsters. On the way, they learn another unfortunate truth; that overworked local educators and supercops tend to get incredibly cagey when local kids turn into unkillable murder machines and start eating people.
